Oh no, I'm watching an episode of King of Queens and the main character just received a call on his answering machine and it's the same machine that I currently use....the episode is from 1998. On a related note, I'm thinking about dropping our home phone line entirely and save the money. Seems like a relatively needless expense now if I can get a headset for my Iphone. It's $50 a month, so that seems worth while to make the change. Has everyone else already done this??
On my way to get lunch at Falafill, I saw a couple of interesting things of which I took quick pictures.
As you might recall, in May of last year I called that this restaurant was failing and in March of this year it did indeed close. Now they are putting in a Mr. Taco...whatever that is. We have plenty of not good Mexican options in the area, so I'm skeptical, but I'll give them a shot. I'm sure the landlord is kicking himself/herself for trying to raise the rent on Einstein's Bagels to the point where they bailed. It was empty for almost 18 months after Einstein left.
Ms. Stephanie is co-sponsoring a sandwich this month at my falafel shop! Apparently they are going to have a new chef sponsoring a sandwich every month. Interesting. Tough to keep up that pace though. Anyway, we used to go to her restaurant, Scylla, pretty often. Good eating. Then she made it big by winning Top Chef one season and closed Scylla. She opened a new place, Girl and The Goat, and it's nearly impossible to get in. Good for her!
